Phenom’s North Carolina Top 80 Camp Evaluations: Team 7

Team 7 Coach: Joe Badgett   #7:5’11 ’21 Carlos Raven (Wayne Country Day) Starting things off, we look at a player that showcased an excellent motor and team-first approach throughout camp, Carlos Raven.

North Carolina’s Sophomore Breakouts to Watch For

6′ Jaquante Harris Hoke County HS (Raeford, NC) Harris is a tough player who you cannot put into an archetype bubble. Just know he steps on the floor and makes plays on both ends. The guard has a tough handle and is a lock up point of attack defender. He is a very good rebounder and has the ability to both attack the paint or shoot from range. Without question he should be seeing offers...

Bendel’s Best: JMAC Showcase & CP3 Live (Part Three)

6’6 ’19 Jace McKenney (WBC Elite) The development process can be a long, grueling road for some players, but Jace McKenney has rapidly transformed into a quality prospect over the last year.
